2009 Proof that the low-A pitchers who exchange hands in lesser major league deals donít always fade away, Kelvin Pichardo is still climbing the Giantsí ladder three years after he was acquired from the Phillies for the remains of Michael Tucker. Having made the leap to Double-A in mid 2007, Pichardo improved across the board upon his repeat of the level last year. The catch is that Pichardo, a small righty who throws 92 to 94 with a violent, maximum-effort delivery, complained of arm soreness last year, which suggests that his arm may give out before his stuff does.
2008 Small righty Kelvin Pichardo moved to the bullpen last year and had success with a fastball/slider combination. His command deserts him at times, but he could be a high-leverage reliever two years down the road
